Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty easy going, and I like new experiences. I spent a few
years living abroad, so I think I'm open-minded and accepting of
different quirks and lifestyles. I'm sarcastic, but I don't think
I'm a jerk about it.
I'm into movies, music, dining out, hiking, travel, photography, or
just hanging out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a business analyst, and I enjoy the mix of creativity and
critical thinking it (usually) requires. I don't feel particularly
defined by my job, but I feel lucky that it's satisfying to me
right now. After making several big geographical moves for my
career, "work/life balance" is increasingly important to me.
I was really involved in the arts when I was growing up, and I try
to keep that up in my free time. I take pictures, study musical
instruments, keep a journal, and try whatever else I come across
that seems fun.
I had a short-but-fun entrepreneurship experience, and I'm looking
for the next one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eating with chopsticks
Losing house keys and forgetting to send in rebate forms.
Finishing the WHOLE pizza (then napping).
Remembering to floss.
Getting by without a clothes dryer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've gotten some eyebrow comments recently. And I miss little hairs
on my neck all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Tons! Here are some I revisit: Wet Hot American Summer, Requiem for
a Dream, Best in Show, The Irony of Fate, Be With Me, Lust/Caution,
Pride and Prejudice, Groundhog Day, Black Swan, and others.
, PBS NewsHour
, Meet the
Press, Star Trek, Game of Thrones
documentaries, and whatever else friends are watching.
I try to listen to newly-released albums each week. But I'd include
, Radical Face
, Sia, etc.
Particular favorites are Italian, Indian, Japanese, and Korean. I'm
a pretty adventurous eater, so there isn't a genre of food that I
rule out really. And I can eat spicier food than you. I can pretty
much guarantee that. Yes, that IS a dare... ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- my journal
- some kind of project
- alone time
- a smartphone. If I broke mine I would probably replace it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Current events. Finding new music. What to do next. Snickers bars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out. Or in. Half and half maybe.
I get the urge to get out sometimes. I guess I've been doing that
less often lately.
When I stay in I like watching movies/tv, listening to music,
surfing the internet, writing in my journal, reading, playing
or just talking over tea or wine (...or warm sake. Anyone? heh).

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...if you're honest. The rest is probably chemistry. :)
